Beyond the Valley: Foxtrot & the Get Down Gets Their ‘Shine’ On

Fun fact: I’ve been following Philadelphia’s Foxtrot & the Get Down for years. We originally crossed paths back in 2014, in the old days of The Quinn Spinn. We’d play their tunes on the show and, as a matter of fact, they even trekked all the way to North Jersey that June, where we were based at the time, to perform at an American Cancer Society benefit that we produced called “Entertainment For a Cure.”

This Week on WLVU: Sept. 4-10, 2017

One thing you might notice if you’ve been listening to WLVU: The Sound of The Underground lately is that things are seeming a bit more organized. That’s because we’re taking all of our music and categorizing it by genre. So, on Tuesday evenings, you might hear a rock block. On Sunday afternoons, you’ll hear a solid couple hours of jazz. Expect more programming blocks like this to cater to specific tastes going forward. More information is to come.

If you tune in at the right times, you’ll also notice fine WLVU programs, like the ones outlined below!
